Fall Fest did sound a bit more classy, Cornfest does sound redneck. When you hear the name Cornfest it stirs up visions of corn-cob pipes, no shoes, and dueling banjos.

All I can say is WELCOME TO OBION COUNTY! need i say more? Maybe thats why I am moving to chattanooga. at least those southerners have a little more sense about them. This topix forum gets more backstabbing, name calling and bull crap than memphis does. check it out I am telling the truth. guess there is nothing else to do in this town except talk about other people and their lives. Corn holein omg!by the way, I wished the boys in this town would invest some money in real mufflers for those trucks. Guess it makes them feel like a big boy to have loud pipes and need stepladders to get into their trucks. now that is redneck. pay your child support instead of spending it on those trucks. just a thought

I can talk just like Beavis and Butthead. Too bad we aren't on the computer so I could act like Beavis. Itis a little hard for me to do, since I am such a shy guy but I'll try. Oh shit , can't do that since we're just on the computer.

I just love the signs that say "Cornfest Festival". It's a fest AND a festival, such a festive redneck event. Kind of like Bill Cody's is a bar AND saloon, according to the sign on the door.

They could call the contest a "corntest".

The original "CornFest" was held in 1991 on the Property of James Carl Hammond on Flippin Lane. The vacant lot adjascent the cornfield was equipped with a stage, lights, and sound equipment used for the bands performing that night. The original festival was named by Bobby Carter Jr.(Bowley).....

The original Fall Fest was great. Richard Petty meets Carl Perkins on the stage at the BBQ Cook off. Parade goes down Reelfoot Avenue with Petty & Perkins leading the way. Goodyear Car Show, Stealth Bomber Fly over at Airshow. Then Union City decides it needs to be more "countywide". Unity, now it's fairgrounds and politicians as the "pride". Good goin tators Zzzzzzzzz.

Seem like I was told that they changed it from Fallfest to Cornfest because of the Ethanol plant opening a few years back. They changed it because of all the corn that would be used in Obion County to produce ethanol.....but I could be wrong.

And they have John Michael Montgomery for a free show on Saturday night.

I think they have 3 straight nights of concerts, all free to the public.

Cornfest is an embarrasment
